CCP Recertifications - 2024
CCP Exam Registration
CCP Forms and Requests

The CCP Certification Program began its efforts to offer a California certification designation starting in 2016. Then by February 9, 2018, and throughout 2019, held its Inaugural CCP Exams where California successful paralegals earned today's first California Certified Paralegal designation.

As the paralegal and legal profession, everyday work experiences, education programs, and CAPA's Certification program experienced many challenges, restructuring, rethinking and disruptions during 2019 - 2022; we are all looking forward to 2024 with the opportunity to set future CCP Exam dates, availability, and promotion. CAPA hopes to provide each and every one of you who have already taken a prior CCP Exam and are anxious to retake the exam, and those who are seeking to obtain the California certification for 2024, and thereafter, with an opportunity to learn more about CAPA's CCP Certification Program and then to take/retake the CCP Exam.

2024 Recertifications - All Certifications are responsible to provide their required Forty Hours (40) of MCLE Credits, those represent eight (8) credit hours of California required MCLE (Legal Ethics and General Law) for each full two year term and four (4) credit hours of California required MCLE Credits for the final one year term, the remaining twenty (20) credit hours are to be earned by participating in additional General Law events that are eligible for MCLE pursuant to the Rules and Regulations required by the State Bar of California.  

CCP Administration is providing a MCLE Tracking Worksheet (3) to each CCP to input the details of their MCLE credit units for each reporting period (all credits will be due for 2019 - 2023 at this time due to the pandemic and its residual effects), provide valid Certificate of Attendances for each event, and submit directly to CCP Administration.  Each CCP must complete the Recertification Application prior to their expiration.

Each CCP shall submit a Recertification Application (found on the Quick links area on the home page when any CCP logs in). The Application requires the CCP to update their current employment, any education changes, new credentials, and inputting MCLE credits with supporting documentation to be reviewed, verified and documented.

The Certification Fee must be remitted for the continuation of the CCP designation, along with the required compliance of forty (40) MCLE Credit Hours confirmed by CCP Administration.

If you have any questions, please contact CCP Administration.

Many of the items on  this tab have been static during the pandemic, the CCP Certification Committee is working on a 2024 CCP Exam and Retake schedule. We will provide updated information as soon as it can be released and will update this page.

Note: Any Applicant who has originally taken the CCP Exam during the Inaugural Period (February 2018 through November 2019) must apply as a Retake Examinee.
